I am designing a website. I want to put the required option to add ID and password to access the website for each person. What programming language do I need to use. What is a book you can suggest I read to learn how to do this?

Oooof! That's a broad topic.

There are many possible combinations. I'm assuming you're already fairly familiar with HTML.

I guess one common combination would be PHP & MySQL, possibly with some JavaScript thrown in. You're going to have a fairly steep learning curve... not that that should put you off - everyone has to start somewhere!

Good luck

So far the comments have been unreasonably kind. I'll be the first honest one here. The only responsible answer to your question is that you should NOT even attempt to roll your own website authentication code! Vulnerabilities are found on a monthly basis for even the most popular CMSs and frameworks that have had hundreds of qualified developers involved in the projects.

What you should do is instead research carefully what established CMS and/or MVC framework that you might want to integrate into your web development project. Even then, you will need to monitor and update that framework frequently to ensure that your website remains safe from vulnerabilities.
